Honey Herb Lamb Chops

Honey Herb Lamb chops are an excellent choice for a springy onboard meal.

Is spring fever running rampant on board? Enjoy this light, simple dinner evocative of warmer weather. Recipes serve 4.

Honey Herb Lamb Chops
¾ cup honey
2 sprigs thyme or 1 tsp. dried thyme
¼ tsp. each salt and pepper
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. each parsley, chives and tarragon
¼ tsp. each salt and pepper
8 lamb chops

In a microwaveable cup, combine the honey, thyme, and salt and pepper; warm in
microwave to infuse honey with thyme about 15-20 seconds. Set aside. Preheat a grill or pan to high heat.

Combine the garlic powder and herbs in a bowl. Season the lamb with salt and pepper, and rub with the spices. Place the chops on the hot grill or pan, and let them cook for scarcely a minute or until the fat chars a bit, then turn and cook the other side for 2 minutes.

Adjust the temperature to medium-low, and cook chops another 3-5 minutes on each side or until medium rare. To serve, arrange lamb chops around the
salad, then drizzle the warm thyme honey over the chops and salad.
